Tufts University has announced it will host a temporary art project during which signs mimicking fire escape plans will be posted in buildings to inform illegal aliens how to flee potential Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids.

The “ICE Escape Signs” will be unique to each building in which they are placed, featuring floor plans and emergency exit routes.

Started by artist Jenny Polak, the project will be featured at Tufts during the coming school year as part of a broader year-long series designed to be displayed outside the art galleries called, “Walls Turned Sideways: Artists Confront the Justice System.”

“Polak will work with the Tufts community to create a series of site-respondent signs throughout campus beginning in the fall as part of her ongoing series – ICE Escape Signs. A decentered public art project, ICE Escape Signs are designed for specific floorplans and draw attention to the fact that people are living in daily fear of being caught in a raid by Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” the Tufts University Art Galleries website explains.

Venues that have already hosted the project include NJIT School of Architecture, Newark, NJ; Tompkins County Public Library, Ithaca, NY; Seven Hills Conference Center, CA; Queens Central Library Gallery, Jamaica, NY; and the Copenhagen Central Library, Denmark, according to Polak’s website.

“She’s been doing this project since the late 90s, where she’s created ICE escape signs,” Chief Curator Dina Deitsch told Tuft’s Daily. “On the visual level, it looks like a fire escape sign, but talks about immigration politics and policies, and it’s just called ‘ICE Escape Signs.’”

“For populations that are not at risk, but then also for communities that are at risk, how do you create an empathetic or sympathetic, forward-thinking space about it?”

Asked for comment by Campus Reform, Tufts University spokesman Patrick Collins said the “exhibits that are highlighted by Tufts University Art Galleries are meant to provoke and encourage thoughtful, constructive dialogue, an important aspect of Tufts’ commitment to promoting civic engagement in the lives of its students and community members.”

“As a university, we recognize the power of art to stimulate conversation about difficult issues of the day. Inclusion of artwork for exhibition does not indicate university support for the views expressed.”

The Trump administration has announced new asylum policies that would effectively end asylum entitlements for the vast majority of migrants reaching the southern border.

The “Third-Country Asylum Rule” issued in a bulletin by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) signals a major crackdown on asylum claims along the Mexican border.

The new rule to be published imminently in the Federal Register reads as follows:

“This IFR uses the authority delegated by Congress in section 208(b)(2)(C) of the Immigration and Nationality Act to enhance the integrity of the asylum process by placing further restrictions or limitations on eligibility for aliens who seek asylum in the United States. Specifically, the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security are revising 8 C.F.R. § 208.13(c) and 8 C.F.R. § 1208.13(c) to add a new bar to eligibility for asylum for an alien who enters or attempts to enter the United States across the southern border, but who did not apply for protection from persecution or torture where it was available in at least one third country outside the alien’s country of citizenship, nationality, or last lawful habitual residence through which he or she transited en route to the United States.”

Three key restrictions to the rule are explained as follows:

(1) an alien who demonstrates that he or she applied for protection from persecution or torture in at least one of the countries through which the alien transited en route to the United States, and the alien received a final judgment denying the alien protection in such country;

(2) an alien who demonstrates that he or she satisfies the definition of “victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons” provided in 8 C.F.R. § 214.11; or,

(3) an alien who has transited en route to the United States through only a country or countries that were not parties to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol, or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.

Attorney General William Barr has acknowledged the full legality and necessity of the rule.

“This Rule is a lawful exercise of authority provided by Congress to restrict eligibility for asylum,” reads Barr’s statement in the bulletin. “The United States is a generous country but is being completely overwhelmed by the burdens associated with apprehending and processing hundreds of thousands of aliens along the southern border.”

“This Rule will decrease forum shopping by economic migrants and those who seek to exploit our asylum system to obtain entry to the United States—while ensuring that no one is removed from the United States who is more likely than not to be tortured or persecuted on account of a protected ground.”

The southern border continues to be inundated with hundreds of thousands of migrants from all over the world, including a surge from African countries such as the Congo, which is currently in the midst of a historic Ebola outbreak.

A Mexican human smuggler was arrested after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) discovered 33 illegal migrants locked inside an extremely hot trailer.

Border Patrol agents flagged a tractor-trailer for secondary inspection at an immigration checkpoint on Interstate 19 near Nogales, Arizona, on Tuesday night.

“A search of the trailer filled with produce from Mexico, led agents to discover 33 foreign nationals from Mexico and El Salvador hiding inside,” CBP announced in a statement. “The group concealed inside the trailer included 12 juveniles in age from three to 17, a pregnant female, and a convicted felon.”

“The interior of the trailer was nearly 100 degrees, causing imminent danger to the people locked inside with no means of egress. Although the trailer was equipped with a refrigeration unit, the driver did not have it turned on.”

The driver, a 37-year-old Mexican national, was taken into custody and charged with felony human smuggling.

The migrants were taken into CBP custody and are being processed for immigration violations.

“In an effort to prevent fatalities at the hands of smugglers, Department of Homeland Security has recently launched ‘Operation Safeguard’ to educate the public and the trucking industry on the life-threatening dangers involved in using commercial conveyances to smuggle humans,” the agency said.

The group profiting from the migrant emergency centers is openly backing the left’s play to swell immigration numbers.

An American Catholic bishop staged a protest against U.S. immigration laws and enforcement by escorting Central American migrants across the Lerdo International Bridge into Texas on Thursday.

Surrounded by media and activists holding large images of migrant children, El Paso Bishop Mark Seitz slammed the federal government in both Spanish and English for “inhumane” treatment of migrants pouring illegally into the United States.

“Standing here at the U.S.-Mexico border, how do we begin to diagnose the soul of our country?” Seitz said. “A government and society which view fleeing children and families as threats. A government which treats children in U.S. custody worse than animals. A government and society who turn their backs on pregnant mothers, babies and families and make them wait in Ciudad Juarez without a thought to the crushing consequences on this challenged city.”

“This government and this society are not well.”

Seitz and a Mexican priest reportedly prayed over a Honduran family while escorting them across the international bridge to make an asylum claim with U.S. authorities.

“The family was initially stopped in the middle of the bridge, as tempers flared between reporters and border officers who were momentarily unclear about whether to allow journalists to cross into U.S. territory as temperatures topped 100 degrees,” the Dallas Morning News reports. “The family was finally taken into custody by U.S. officials.”

The Diocese of El Paso issued a statement explaining the “Faith Action” protest staged by Seitz, saying it was necessary to draw attention to “actions taken to criminalize migration at the U.S.-Mexico border, including the expansion of the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy, the deployment of security forces of both countries to the border, the ongoing deaths of migrant families in the Rio Grande and grave conditions in migrant processing centers.”

Seitz published a “Pastoral Letter on Migration” in 2017, condemning the Trump administration and calling for a “moratorium” on deportations of illegal immigrants.

Illegal immigration won the evening at the Clown World Democrat debate.

Hundreds of thousands of people are on the move in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) amid a breakout of inter-ethnic warfare, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) reports.

Over 300,000 have been displaced in the month of June alone as rival factions and militias battle in the northeast region of the African nation, which could exacerbate an Ebola outbreak that is now considered the second largest in recorded history.

The UNHCR says it “fears this escalation could engulf large parts of the province. We are gravely concerned for the safety of civilians after receiving reports of killings, kidnappings, maiming and sexual violence being unleashed against people.”

“The majority of the displaced have sought shelter with the host communities. Some 30,000 arrived in existing displacement sites where conditions were already dire, with many needs including shelter and health.”

Ituri Province has been identified as an area where attacks have been particularly ferocious in the past week – and also a hot zone for the ongoing Ebola outbreak.

“An Ebola epidemic in Congo, which spread to Uganda last week, has caused 2,168 infections since August, including 1,449 deaths, with Ituri accounting for about 10 percent of cases and deaths, WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic said,” Reuters reports.

An accelerated collapse in the DRC should concern Western readers, as Congolese have begun arriving by the hundreds at the U.S. southern border, and are being transported to cities such as San Antonio, Texas, and Portland, Maine.

Some 350 Congolese migrants were brought to San Antonio in early June with little warning to local officials, and Border Patrol warned that more should be expected.

“We didn’t get a heads up,” Interim Assistant City Manager Colleen Bridger told local media. “When we called Border Patrol to confirm, they said, ‘Yeah, another 200 to 300 from the Congo and Angola will be coming to San Antonio.'”

Initial investigations conducted by Infowars reporters on the ground in San Antonio indicate that many of the Congolese migrants are not being properly screened by border authorities.

How Ebola Would Spread In America

Many unvetted migrants from Ebola-infested countries are now crossing America’s southern border.

The catastrophic surge of migrants on the U.S. southern frontier could be slashed by up to 90 percent if Congress made changes to a pair of key asylum laws, according to Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan.

McAleenan also asserted that the migration crisis may effectively never end if current laws are not changed.

During a border security hearing held by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) presented legal proposals to McAleenan as part of Graham’s “Secure and Protect Act.”

Graham asked McAleenan what reduction in the migrant surge might be expected if migrant families could be detained for up to 100 days while they await asylum hearings, and if asylum applications could only be filed in migrants’ countries of origin or Mexico.

“I believe the vast majority would stop,” McAleenan asserted.

“So if we made those two changes – extend the Flores decision to 100 days, so that we would have time to process these people and not release them into the interior of the country, and changed our asylum laws, do you think 90 percent of this flow from Central America would stop overnight?” Graham asked.

“I think between 70 and 90 percent would stop, yes,” McAleenan responded.

McAleenan also revealed that 90 percent of migrant ‘family units’ are skipping their asylum hearings, according to findings of a pilot program which monitored some 7,000 cases.

During the same hearing, Sen. Graham echoed a warning issued by McAleenan months ago, asserting that the border has effectively collapsed.

“There has to be a breaking point,” Graham said. “We’ve reached the breaking point at the border. I cannot imagine what it’s like to go to work every day, where half the people are dedicating their time to dealing with family members, minors, and all that goes into trying to deal with 600,000 people in your custody.”

“The breaking point has long passed at the border. This is not sustainable.”

Radical leftists now promote open borders policies in the name of social justice, despite the danger of spreading disease.

A vehicle transporting illegal migrants crashed while evading Texas police, leaving six dead and eight injured, authorities say.

Officers attempted to stop the speeding SUV in Nueces County, Texas, at around 10 p.m. on Tuesday night, but lost track of the vehicle during a chase when it disappeared into an area of dense brush, according to Robstown Police Chief Erasmo Flores.

Hours later, a woman called the Nueces County Sheriff’s office to report an injured man who had appeared at her home.

Deputies reportedly discovered two more injured men walking along a road in the area, and the SUV was located shortly after in a field, having crashed into a drainage ditch at approximately 50 mph with at least 14 passengers inside.

“Robstown police, EMS, the Nueces County Sheriff’s Office, the Coast Guard and Texas DPS responded to the fatal crash and spent several hours at the scene,” the Corpus Christi Caller Times reports. “Border Patrol also responded because the group of about 14 are believed to be undocumented immigrants from other countries, including El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico, sheriff’s officials said.”

Nueces County Sheriff J.C. Hooper indicated that incidents related to illegal migration and human smuggling are common in the area.

“It has a classic appearance of human trafficking,” Hooper said. “We are a pipeline. We are on a corridor to Houston, Texas and these first responders deal with it every day.”

The crisis at our southern border has now reached unprecedented levels, yet for months the MSM and the left have pushed the false narrative that President Trump was “making it up.”

Trial is beginning for a U.S. activist charged with harboring illegal aliens and conspiring to transport them.

Scott Warren, a volunteer with No More Deaths, faces 20 years in prison if convicted of three felony counts in a case that could set future precedent for what assistance U.S. citizens can provide to illegal migrants who cross the border.

“U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested Scott Warren in a January 2018 raid near Ajo, Arizona, after they found two migrants hiding in the shower of a ramshackle building used by humanitarian groups,” Reuters reports.

“Warren was indicted after former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions instructed prosecutors to prioritize cases involving the harboring of migrants. The crackdown was part of President Donald Trump’s ‘zero-tolerance’ policies meant to deter illegal immigration.”

Warren’s lawyers argue his apprehension was a retaliatory move in response to a report published by No More Deaths denouncing Border Patrol for destroying water provisions left out for migrants by the group’s volunteers.

“After a dangerous journey across Mexico and a difficult crossing through the Arizona desert, someone told Jose and Kristian that they might find water and food at a place in Ajo called the Barn,” Warren explains in an article published by the Washington Post. “The Barn is a gathering place for humanitarian volunteers like me, and there the two young men were able to eat, rest and get medical attention.”

“As the two were preparing to leave, the Border Patrol arrested them. Agents also handcuffed and arrested me, for — in the agency’s words — having provided the two migrants with ‘food, water, clean clothes and beds.'”

In the piece, Warren goes on to slam the Trump administration for “warehousing asylees, separating families, caging children.”

While Warren’s attorneys argue their client was exercising his religious rights to provide aid to migrants, prosecutors are expected to assert the activist “went beyond humanitarian aid and helped migrants enter the country illegally,” according to Reuters.

The United States is experiencing one of the worst illegal migration surges in the nation’s history, as hundreds of thousands of migrants flood the southern border.

“Border Patrol’s apprehension numbers are off the charts,” CBP tweeted in mid-May. “Nearly 520,000 people have been apprehended on the SW border this FY.”

“In the past 7 days, agents have averaged 4,500+ arrests per day. USBP has already surpassed the TOTAL SW border apprehensions of every FY since 2009.”

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol has warned the migrant crisis at the southern border is spiraling out of control, citing astronomical numbers of illegal aliens and ‘families’ being apprehended by agents.

CBP has captured over half a million illegal aliens since October 1st alone – more than any entire fiscal year in a decade.

“Border Patrol’s apprehension numbers are off the charts,” CBP tweeted. “Nearly 520,000 people have been apprehended on the SW border this FY.”

“In the past 7 days, agents have averaged 4,500+ arrests per day. USBP has already surpassed the TOTAL SW border apprehensions of every FY since 2009.”

The agency also revealed that tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors are currently in custody, contributing to a large portion of total apprehensions.

“The number of family units & unaccompanied children has skyrocketed to 64% of SW border apprehensions,” CBP announced. “So far this year, USBP has apprehended more than 285,000 family units & nearly 50,000 unaccompanied children. In the month of April alone, CBP had 42,000 children in custody.”

Immigration and Customs Enforcement recently disclosed findings that a stunning 87 percent of purported family units are ignoring court orders to attend hearings to determine the legitimacy of their asylum claims.

Additionally, border authorities have released new data indicating that agents are detaining some 2,400 families daily – while discovering more than 25 percent of family claims are fraudulent, as Infowars reported last week.

The state of Lower Austria will soon require migrants and asylum seekers to abide by a code of conduct, which will include signing a “Ten Commandments of Immigration.”

Details of the groundbreaking new policies were shared with German daily Die Welt, which reports that newcomers will be expected to attend integration courses and also have the opportunity to receive an education in Austrian values and laws.

“As soon as someone comes to us, every asylum seeker receives the ‘Ten Commandments of Immigration’ of Lower Austria in addition to the usual administrative documents,” state minister Gottfried Waldhäusl told the paper. “The commandments will then be available in all values courses and integration projects in a total of 15 different languages.”

Key ‘commandments’ include the following:

– Learn the German language
– Obey Austrian laws
– Orient one’s own behavior and upbringing of children to Austrian values
– Respect the freedom of religion
– Protect animals from unnecessary suffering
– Resolve conflicts without violence
– Live in gratitude to Austria

Waldhäusl is known as a hardliner on migration policy.

In November 2018 [Waldhäusl] had a refugee shelter built in Drasenhofen near the Czech border for young ‘notorious troublemakers,'” Die Welt reports. “The neighborhood was surrounded by a fence and guarded by security forces. The young people were only allowed to leave the home in the company of a security guard,” in order to preserve public safety.

Austrian Interior Minister Herbert Kickl recently warned Brussels that another explosive migrant crisis is brewing on Europe’s frontiers, calling for preemptive measures to be taken.

“We all still remember the images of the mass immigration of 2015/2016,” Kickl said in April. “It would be irresponsible to twiddle one’s thumb and wait until tens of thousands of migrants are on the border.”

“A political repair-and-patchwork mentality does not bring us anywhere in the E.U. — only a clear, proactive strategic approach. It’s about averting a new crisis rather than waiting for it to erupt.”
